Dr Mark Kemenosh – ELDOA Method – Colorado seminar this past weekend

Dr Mark Kemenosh and his daughter Jill Kemenosh, our future Pilates guru at the office both traveled to Colorado this past weekend to become certified in the Level 1 ELDOA Method which Dr. Mark started to do earlier this year when he studied under Guy Voyer, a DO who started the manual technique commonly referred to as “Joint Pumping”.  Dr. Kemenosh was exposed to Dr. Voyer who spoke at the Titlelist Performance Institute Wolf Golf Classic in late 2016 on the topics of articular joint pumping and the ELDOA method which has started to take fire in the golf training world.

Some of the techniques in the ELDOA method are greatly centered around techniques to help with injury prevention, reduce joint inflammation and arthrosis, delay disc degeneration, increase disc hydration, and to even possibly normalize disc bulges.

Here is some information from the ELDOA Methods webiste:

The ELDOA exercises and Myofascial Stretches are specific techniques created by world renowned osteopath, Guy VOYER DO. ELDOA METHOD Classes are semi private group classes organized by certified ELDOA/MFS Instructor, Stephanie McCusker, who uses a combination of these techniques as well as other Somatraining techniques to deliver the most beneficial sessions possible. The ELDOA METHOD classes were founded in Los Angeles, CA and are now being offered here in Auckland, NZ. These Classes are not based on a formula. Every class is designed to respect the proper progressions and order of the techniques as taught by Dr. Voyer to ensure quality. These classes will vary depending on the needs of those participating. There will be an intentional goal set for each designated class and will be ever changing to continually challenge each individual while encouraging their overall improvements.

BENEFITS OF ELDOA METHOD Classes

ELDOAs and Myofascial Stretches are very specific and complex techniques that require strong attention to form and correct progressions. Everyone will benefit from the effects of ELDOAs and MFS but each person is different and without proper instruction and help from a Certified ELDOA/MFS Instructor, these techniques will not be as effective. By attending the classes, you not only receive instruction from a certified instructor but the full hour dedicated to stretching enhances the many benefits including:

  • Normalize Disc Bulges
  • Reduced Degrees of Scoliosis
  • Increased Flexibility
  • Improved Muscle Performance and Tone
  • Normalization of Visceral Function
  • Reduced Stress
  • Injury Recovery and Prevention
  • Reduced Joint Inflammation and Arthrosis
  • Delayed Disc Degeneration
  • Increased Disc Hydration
  • Increased Blood Flow
  • Improved Posture
  • Relief of Chronic and Acute Back Pain
  • Relief of Neck and Shoulder Tension
  • Improved Awareness and Overall Wellbeing
  • Improved Recovery Time for Sports and Training
  • Reduced Forward Head Posture

The ELDOA METHOD classes and website are not meant to diagnose or offer medical advice.  Do not rely on the information provided as an alternative to medical advise from your doctor or other registered health care providers. If you have specific questions about any medical matter, please consult your physician or professional health care provider. All those with a chronic/acute injury or medical condition who wish to attend the ELDOA METHOD Classes must first receive clearance from their doctor or registered health professional prior to participation.

Here are some pictures from Dr. Mark and Jill’s seminar!  There might be videos to come but they couldn’t easily email those back to home base here in South Jersey!

Just like Pilates, we feel that the ELDOA Methods will greatly benefit our patients suffering with spine related issues and even more so with core stability and strength!  Both Pilates and ELDOA are very core-centric types of exercise for correcting and improving posture and the resting nature of the joints surrounding spine.  If you have questions about your issues or need to have questions answers, feel free to call us at 856-228-3100 or email us below!

Dr Mark Kemenosh Seminar Recap – Guy Voyer, DO – Joint Pumping – Articular Pumping

While at the Titlest Performance Institute World Golf Fitness Summit a few weeks ago, Dr. Mark Kemenosh was introduced to Guy Voyer and Dan Hellman who were teaching an elective course on techniques they have been developing for several years now.  Who is Guy Voyer, DO?  Check out the link below!

About Guy Voyer, DO

This past weekend Dr. Mark was in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for a follow up seminar on articular pumping or more commonly referred to as joint pumping.  Dan Hellman refers to the techniques below in an excerpt taken from his website.

Structures That Need Pumping?

What is articular pumping?  The first thing we need to define is what is an articulation.  An articulation is a “joint” that is usually formed of fibrous connective tissue and cartilage.  There are many types of joints and they are usually grouped according to their motion.  Joints are often subject to arthritis, capsulitis, arthroses, traumas, sprains, strains and tendinitises.  The same way a cylinder slides inside a piston and requires oil, the proper functioning of joint calls for synovial fluid.  The body also contains little “sponge like” structures called bursa.  When the bursa is well hydrated, they prevent friction between tendons and ligaments acting like tiny shock absorbers.

What Is Pumping?

For all the reasons listed above, the joint fluids must be mobilized with a gentle technique called articular pumping.  With this in mind, there is a very precise method of targeting a ligament, tendon or joint capsule with over 600 precise pumping techniques.  Pumping of the joints is like taking your car in for a “grease job” to lubricate all the joints.  The technique feels amazing and the results are dramatic.

Here are some pictures of Dr. Mark’s adventures this past weekend at the seminar.

Dr Mark looks forward to integrating some articular pumping techniques into our routine of Chiropractic and Active Release treatments here at the office.  If you are in need of joint or muscle related pain in South Jersey or Philly, give our front desk a call at 856-228-3100.
